RUFC - Moore praises Mullins

RUFC - Moore praises Mullins

Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore said he will have a big dilemma when Ryan Cresswell is fit as he thinks Johnny Mullins has done a great job stepping into the skippers boots at centre-half.

Speaking to Radio Sheffield, Moore said, 'I`d seen John Mullins play for Stockport in the first division, never mind the second division, at centre-back, we took a chance and put him in with Nick Fenton and both of them have done ever so well.

'They had a little hiccough early on, on Tuesday night where they weren`t at their best but overall I think they`ve been fantastic. I think Mullins looks more comfortable playing a centre-half and I think his form, playing at right-back, hasn`t been as good as it has playing centre-back.`

Asked if it will give him a bit of a dilemma when Ryan Cresswell comes back, Moore agreed but said, 'One thing about Cresser is that he is a leader, he is the captain of the team but, if those two are playing at the top of their game like they have been doing then it will be nice for me to say to Cresser come and sit on the bench!`

Talking about midfielder Mark Bradley, who Moore has said is available to go out on loan, he said, 'Things haven`t worked out for him. We`ve got basically six midfield players. Two are playing, two are on the bench and the other two lads aren`t getting a game and he`s in that category and he`s got to knuckle down and get on with it.

'He started well for us and he`s a quality player who I don`t think we`ve seen the best of, but everyone has a dip of form and it`s not his fault but the two lads who are playing at the present time are doing really well for us in there.`
